Created by The Libertinis with Max Kirchner
Directed by The Libertinis
July 28 – August 19, 2017
It’s time to revisit the finer points of higher learning, hard lessons, and hot lunch in NITE SKOOL! Get your ass to class for this genre-blending, boundary-crushing skool nite full of music, dance, comedy, and so much more as we plumb the depths of our fine education system (including, but not limited to: sex “education,” American imperialism, and dreams drowned in a bucket of meatballs.) Annex Theatre darlings The Libertinis, wordsmith Max Kirchner, surprise Substitute Teachers, and a full roster of bad kids with good reputations will teach you that we always have more to learn.
ABOUT THE LIBERTINIS
The Libertinis are an interdisciplinary performance ensemble (interarts gang) comprised of Tootsie Spangles, Hattie HellKat, and Woody Shticks that delivers genre-blending storytelling guaranteed to electrify heads, hearts, guts, and groins. Shaking together theatre, comedy, and clown into one deliciously weird cocktail since 2012, The Libertinis have created mainstage productions at Annex Theatre, the Ballard Underground, the TPS Blackbox, Seattle Fringe Fest, and more. Whether an intimate storytelling show about deep, dark secrets or a bombastic, glitter-fueled blowout about time-traveling gogo dancers, they’ve collaborated with some of Seattle’s coolest playwrights and rising stars. As resident producers at The Pocket, The Libertinis have also produced a regular series of one-night P(ART)Ys (art parties, for the uninitiated) featuring wacky and wonderful new work and brought the Flabongo to the masses!
Max is a local writer for stage, screen, and page, as well as a longtime Libertinis collaborator. He is thrilled to be returning to Annex, where he and the Libertinis first combined their talents on GONE WILD: A Savage Romp Through the Animal Kingdom. Their partnership continued with YER CHEATIN’ HEART and ATOMIC FALLS, USA!, and Max is elated to be headed back to Skool with his favorite interdisciplinary arts gang.
